We can't unfortunately, not without building a new version and distributing it on the store - which would take way more than a few days (the vote expires on 16th).

 

Why is there no information on Affinity blog?

Designer deserves all the publicity, including this. Time to help a bit? If you are a member of any photo or graphics art related forums, maybe you could post a friendly message about the matter and ask people to cast a vote for Designer.

Pity, that there is no official message (for example on the blog). This is how I had to share just a link to a forum post.

Best wishes for a win.  Needs more support though, I noticed "Todoist" is currently 35% and Affinity 26% :(

Whaaat? O.o Last Time I checked, Affinity Designer was voted around 48% and now only 26%...and I also remember that even Penbook was a few percent over Todoist! I mean there are hundreds of similar Apps like Todoist. I can absolutely see no exciting Tools, Features and whatsovever Todoist can offer in comparison to other Projectmanagement or To-Do-List Apps for Windows. I mean even Plex does sound more exciting and useful to me^^

Voted. Strange though that Affinity Designer went form 53% to 26 percent as of today!

Not that strange. I understand that 2 of the apps notified all users that have it installed to vote for them using a built in (UWP app) feature of the store, irrespective of whether it was running at the time. So that was quite effective (and fair).

Ok. Personally I can't see why a program like Todoist should win. Nothing special or real innovation.

Exactly. Really Sad! But Honestly, I really don't care about the final outcome. That is because I assume Serif will present Affinity Designer for Ipad at WWDC 2018. This will have way more impact on creative/productive people. Nobody will then talk about Todoist anymore. Furthermore, in the second half of 2018 new rumors/ Information about Affinity Publisher will spread (does not matter if Serif will only release the beta version or not at all).

So, good publicity for Serif. It would be of course awesome, if Serif would somehow win this developer Award. That would give them a good boost for their ego and motivation during the next months. I think 2018 could be very exciting for Serif customers. It is the year, customers will get a bigger picture on what the company Serif is really about (goals, target groups, products, etc.). It could be a crucial year for Serif! They can lay a good rock solid foundation for their upcoming years, if everything goes as expected.

This needs a bump

Getting too close to call this one

Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

Our Affinity Designer Welcome screen now asks for a vote too, and a push on Social Media

You could run a contest giveaway (ie, some device/gadget).... or giving away a few licenses or sth....well, too late, is 3 days to go, I think.

At a company I worked at, freebies (icons, textures, etc), as a download for everyone, was quite efficient for promoting almost whatever, if done with enough social media promoting and intensive enough in what is the entries/uploads/url addition at freebie depots. I was in charge of that and of actually making the icon packs... But that was about 5 -6 years ago, dunno how are the masses habits in that matter by now. I know it used to bring quite some traction (I mean, google ranking, which was the purpose for that).... People like free stuff, specially with things they actually need. But well, it's 3 days now...

 

Seems I hadn't known about this post till now.... :S
